Find 2 Closest Neighbors for ALL User

- Motivation
- System Model and Problem Formulation
- Proximity Algorithm
- Experimental Evaluation
- Future Work

- A set of users moving in the plane of a region (u1, u2, … un)
- Area covered by a set of Network Connectivity Points (NCP)
- Each NCP creates the notion of a cell
- W.l.o.g., let the cell be represented by a circular area with an arbitrary radius

- A mobile user u is serviced at any given time point by one NCP.
- There is some centralized service, denoted as QP (Query Processor), which is aware of the coverage of each NCP.
- Each user u reports its positional information to QP regularly

- Definition of the CAkNN problem:
Given a set U of nusers and their location reports ri,t ∈ R at timestep t ∈ T , then the CAkNN problem is to find in each timestep t ∈ T and for each user ui ∈ U the k objects Usol ⊆ U − uisuch that for all other objects uo ∈U − Usol − ui, dist(uk, ui) ≤ dist(uo, ui) holds

- Existing algorithms for CkNN (not CAkNN)
Yu et al. (YPK) 11 and Mouratidis et al. (CPM) 12

- Stateless Version: Iteratively expand the search space for each user into neighboring cells to find the kNN (like previous slide)
- Stateful Version: Improve the stateless version by utilizing previous state, under the following assumptions:

Not Appropriate for CAkNN

- i) Static Querying User (i.e., designated for point queries)
- ii) Target users move slowly (i.e., state does not decay)
- iii) Few Target users

- Motivation
- System Model and Problem Formulation
- Proximity Algorithm
- Experimental Evaluation
- Future Work

- The first specialized algorithm for Continuous All k-NN (CAkNN) queries
- Important characteristics:
- Stateless (i.e., optimized for high mobility)
- Batch processing (i.e., with search space searching)
- Parameter-free (i.e., no tuning parameters)

- Generic operator for proximity-based queries
- See Crowdcast application presented later.

- For every timestep:
- Initialize a k+-heap for every cell
- Insert every user’s location report to every k+-heap
- Notice that k+-heap is a heap-based structure and most location reports will be dropped as a result of an insert operation

- Motivation
- System Model and Problem Formulation
- Proximity Algorithm
- Experimental Evaluation
- Future Work

- Dataset:
- Oldenburg Dataset:
- Spatiotemporal generator with roadmap of Oldenburg as input (25km x 25km)
- 5000 maximum users (Oldenburg population: 160.000)

- Manhattan Dataset:
- Vehicular mobility generator with roadmap of Manhattan as input (3km x 3km)
- 500 users

- Oldenburg Dataset:
- Network connectivity points (NCPs) uniformly in space
- Communication ranges 1km, 4km and 16km for the Oldenburg dataset and ranges 1km and 4km for the Manhattan dataset

- Query: CAkNN
- Comparison: Proximity vs YPK vs CPM (using the optimal parameter value for YPK and CPM)

- Bottleneck for Proximity: build time
- Bottleneck for the adapted YPK and CPM: search time

- Benefit of Proximity in the search time
- Proximity is scalable with respect to k
- Search space for Proximity is not proportional to k like YPK, CPM

- Proximity: build time drops as k increases!
- Machine’s memory scheduler makes more efficient use of buffers when the search spaces are larger

- Proximity scales with the number of users
- Proximity outperforms YPK, CPM by an order of magnitude
- Proximity does not converge to YPK, CPM for higher values of Nmax.
